The Truth About Selling FanartUpdate notice as of January 17, 2013: I have given this guide a MAJOR overhaul. It was originally written over a year and a half ago, and since then my own views and understanding of copyrights has changed. I felt that this guide should reflect those changes, so if you read this guide in the past, please take a moment to look through it again as I have added MANY new topics, information, and sources. Unlike my first draft, I have also changed my viewpoint to neutral throughout this writing.The Truth About Selling Fanart by KiRAWRa

The Truth About Selling Fanart
Fanart is somethin
COMMISSION STATUS: CLOSED
Q: What program do you use?
A: Manga Studio 5 exclusively. I highly recommend it if you're an anime or comic artist.
Q: What tablet do you use?
A: Cintiq 13hd. If you're used to doing small scale traditional art and can afford it, it's great!
Q: Can I draw your OC's?
A: YES. PLEASE DO. Draw them however you want as long as you credit back and don't sell them or something bad like that! But only draw them if you want to draw them. And I'm sorry if I don't respond right away to your fanart, I may not have seen it or am busy with life things!
Q: DO YOU TAKE REQUESTS?
A: NOPE. This is my job and only source of income! It's what I do to put food on the table. If I wasn't able to pay the bills with my art there wouldn't be much art here at all because I'd be doing another job that doesn't involve art!
If you want custom specially made art just for you drawn by me, commission it! Supporting me means I can keep drawing all the time so there's more fun free content for everyone to enjoy, so you'll be an art hero!
